Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday hit back at al-Mustaqbal movement leader MP Saad Hariri, saying all Lebanese should go to Syria to fight the “serious and real” threat terrorism poses to the entire region, as he stressed keenness on the ongoing dialogue between the two parties.

“I tell those who are asking us to withdraw from Syria, 'Let us go together to Syria and Iraq and to any place that contains a threat to the future of our nation, because that is the right way to defend Lebanon,'” said Nasrallah in a televised speech commemorating Hizbullah's “martyr leaders” – Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi and Imad Mughniyeh.

Nasrallah also revealed for the first time that Hizbullah is fighting the jihadist Islamic State group in Iraq.

"We may not have spoken about Iraq before, but we have a limited presence because of the sensitive phase that Iraq is going through," Nasrallah said in reference to ongoing clashes between Iraqi troops, several militias and Kurdish forces against the IS.

Hizbullah is already fighting in Syria, alongside President Bashar Assad's forces.

Nasrallah's speech comes two days after Hariri called on Hizbullah to withdraw from Syria.

“Where is Lebanon's interest in sending Lebanese youths to fight in Syria and Iraq and to interfere in Bahrain's affairs,” Hariri said, describing Nasrallah's recent remarks on “linking the Golan and the South fronts” as “an act of madness.”

However, in his Monday address, Nasrallah voiced support for Hariri's call to “devise a national anti-terror strategy.”

“We agree on the enemy that is terrorism and, unfortunately, we disagree over another enemy, which is Israel,” Nasrallah lamented.

Turning to the issue of the jihadist groups threatening Lebanon's eastern border, Hizbullah's leader noted that “we will face another challenge when the snow melts.”

“Daesh (Islamic State) and al-Nusra (Front) are present on the other side of the Eastern Mountain Range. Circumstances have limited or prevented the confrontations and the state must take a decisive stance on how to deal with this threat,” Nasrallah added.

He noted that these groups “can be easily defeated,” adding that victory requires a “national decision and will.”

Addressing Hariri, Nasrallah added: “Whether the Lebanese like it or not, Lebanon has always been affected by what happens in the region. Anything that happens in it has an impact on Lebanon.”

“The region went through major events and it is being recreated from scratch. Whoever wants to decide Lebanon's fate must be present in the fate of the region. If you want to be absent, you are telling others to control your fate,” he went on to say.

“No one can say, 'I'm Lebanese', because the fate of our people, country, dignity and the future of our generations is at stake.”

Commenting on Hariri's accusation that Hizbullah is “interfering” in Bahrain, Nasrallah said: “Those interfering in Syria, whose relation with Lebanon is more critical than Bahrain's relation with Lebanon, have no right to criticize our interference in Bahrain.”

“They have been interfering in Syria since the beginning of the crisis and they were part of the media and political war,” Nasrallah said.

“We did not call for toppling the regime in Bahrain, we only supported those who were calling for dialogue. We call for avoiding any response to the authorities' violence and Bahrain's blind government must applaud this stance,” Hizbullah's chief added.

“Italy's defense minister has said that her country is willing to join an international anti-terror coalition because 'terrorism is now only 350 kilometers away from the Italian border.' Terrorism is on our border in the mountains, (Syria's) Qusayr and Qalamun and some parties are speaking of right and wrong,” Nasrallah said.

Despite of his jabs at Hariri, Nasrallah affirmed that dialogue will continue between Hizbullah and al-Mustaqbal movement.

“We believe it has yielded good results within the expectations we had in mind from the very beginning,” he said.

“Disregard what is being said in some speeches. Through seriousness we hope to reach a good and reasonable outcome for the sake of all Lebanese,” he added.

As for the issue of the presidential crisis, Nasrallah called for “renewing the domestic efforts,” noting that “the relevant parties in this regard are well-known.”

“I call on all those who are keen on preventing vacuum not to await foreign changes, neither the Iranian nuclear issue nor the Iranian-Saudi dialogue, because the region is heading to further crises and confrontations,” he noted.

“To all parties claiming to be advocates of independence and sovereignty I say: let us renew the national domestic efforts to resolve this issue and cross this juncture,” Nasrallah added.

Commenting on the latest controversy regarding the cabinet's powers in absence of a president, Nasrallah called on the political forces to support the government.

“It should continue its work because there is no alternative other than vacuum and chaos, and I don't think that anyone has an interest in this alternative,” he said.

As for the conflict in Syria, Nasrallah said “the game has ended in Syria and the insistence on fighting has become a form of intransigence.”

“The non-takfiri opposition must be allowed to seek a settlement and the regime will accept that,” he added.

He also called for coordination between the Lebanese and Syrian armies in the border region, calling on the Lebanese government to “coordinate with Damascus over the issues of refugees and security.”

  • 16 February 2015, 19:58

    Nasrallah: Some countries, especially Gulf countries, must approach the region's problems in a different manner, because they are in the circle of danger.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:56

    Nasrallah: Italy's defense minister has said that her country is willing to join an international anti-terror coalition because "terrorism is now only 350 kilometers away from the Italian border." Terrorism is on our border in the mountains, Qusayr and Qalamun and some parties are speaking of right and wrong.

    Nasrallah: For the first time I say search for the hands of the Mossad, the CIA and the British intelligence in the deeds of Daesh, which is doing everything that serves America's hegemony in the region.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:46

  • 16 February 2015, 19:44

    Nasrallah: Israel has the right not to consider Daesh a threat because everything the group has done serves Israel's interests, whether Daesh knew that or not.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:44

    Nasrallah: We salute Bahrain's revolutionaries over their wisdom.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:40

    Nasrallah: Because there is a terrified government in Bahrain that fears any word of right, it gets nervous and it threatens to expel the Lebanese. This is the approach of a weak authority and this is something shameful.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:40

    Nasrallah: We did not call for toppling the regime in Bahrain, we only supported those who were calling for dialogue. We call for avoiding any response to the authorities' violence and Bahrain's blind government must applaud this stance.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:39

    Nasrallah: Those interfering in Syria, whose relation with Lebanon is more critical than Bahrain's relation with Lebanon, have no right to criticize our interference in Bahrain, because they have been interfering in Syria since the beginning of the crisis and they were part of the media and political war.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:37

    Nasrallah: In the past, we faced the problem of convincing some Lebanese that we are part of the Arab region and the Levant, but their stance today has taken a more negative course because we now have to convince them that Lebanon is part of Planet Earth, not of Mars.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:36

    Nasrallah: In light of this travail, the fates and survival of entities and peoples will be decided and the entire world will be affected. No one can say, "I'm Lebanese", because the fate of our people, country, dignity and the future of our generations is at stake.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:35

    Nasrallah: The region went through major events and it is being recreated from scratch. Whoever wants to decide Lebanon's fate must be present in the fate of the region. If you want to be absent, you are telling others to control your fate.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:35

    Nasrallah: Moreover, the fate of the entire world is being decided in this region.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:34

    Nasrallah: Nowadays, Lebanon is greatly affected by the regional events and its fate cannot only be decided in Lebanon, as the fates of Libya, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have become connected.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:34

    Nasrallah: Whether the Lebanese like it or not, Lebanon has always been affected by what happens in the region. Anything that happens in it has an impact on Lebanon.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:33

    Nasrallah on dissociation policy: The facts of history, geography, life and nature say otherwise. For example, we can't tell a storm that we dissociate ourselves from snow and rain because we are a "piece of heaven."

  • 16 February 2015, 19:31

    Nasrallah: We reiterate our support for dialogue among all parties because it is the best approach we have.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:29

    Nasrallah: We will continue our dialogue with al-Mustaqbal movement and we believe it has yielded good results within the expectations we had in mind from the very beginning. Disregard what is being said in some speeches, and through seriousness we hope to reach a good and reasonable outcome for the sake of all Lebanese.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:28

    Nasrallah: We call for supporting the government and it should continue its work because there is no alternative other than vacuum and chaos, and I don't think that anyone has an interest in this alternative. We must cooperate to resolve the disputes and we'll deal positively regarding some solutions. We call for overcoming the problem so that the cabinet can convene again to shoulder its responsibilities.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:28

    Nasrallah: To all parties claiming to be advocates of independence and sovereignty I say: let us renew the national domestic efforts to resolve this issue and cross this juncture.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:27

    Nasrallah: We call for renewing the domestic efforts and the relevant parties in this regard are well-known. I call on all those who are keen on preventing vacuum not to await foreign changes, neither the Iranian nuclear issue nor the Iranian-Saudi dialogue, because the region is heading to further crises and confrontations.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:26

    Nasrallah: On the anniversary of the Hizbullah-FPM MoU, the importance of this agreement and major achievement is being more pronounced and its impact on the political situations in Lebanon and the region is revealing itself. We call for deepening and consolidating the relation and the agreement and we call for similar agreements at the national level. We were hoping to expand the agreement because there is a major national interest in anything that closes ranks and achieves accord.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:24

    Nasrallah: We must renew the salutation to the young men who are deployed on the heights of mountains -- the officers and soldiers of the army and security forces and the men of the resistance. We also salute the officers and soldiers of the Syrian army who are preventing the dispatch of bomb-laden cars. They have all our salutations and appreciation amid this snow and cold.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:23

    Nasrallah: These groups can be easily defeated, but the issue requires a national decision and will.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:23

    Nasrallah: We will face another challenge when the snow melts. Daesh and al-Nusra are present on the other side of the Eastern Mountain Range. Circumstances have limited or prevented the confrontations and the state must take a decisive stance on how to deal with this threat that is present on hills and mountains.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:22

    Nasrallah: Alongside the security plan there are two issues -- the development plan in Baalbek and Hermel as well as in Akkar, and resolving the problem of tens of thousands of people who are wanted over minor or old offenses.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:21

    Nasrallah: We must support the army, security forces and government to control the security situation, that's why the plan must continue. It has been said that the fugitives have fled the area; the army must make sure that they don't return and there should be no leniency.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:20

    Nasrallah: We reiterate our ultimate support for the security plan in the Bekaa and we believe that it came late. It must continue because the Bekaa region was suffering from thieves and outlaws who were intimidating people.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:19

    Nasrallah: The government, parliament and any dialogue session must exert efforts for such a strategy.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:17

    Nasrallah: We in Hizbullah support the call for devising a national anti-terror strategy. We agree on the enemy that is terrorism and, unfortunately, we disagree over another enemy, which is Israel.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:16

    Nasrallah: I extend my condolences to the family of martyr premier Rafik Hariri after the painful incident that shook the region. I also extend my condolences to the families and loved ones of the martyrs who fell in that agonizing and very dangerous incident.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:14

    Nasrallah: The blood of the martyr Jihad has revived the memory of the commander Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and returned this brilliant and historic leader to the forefront of events once again, confirming that his presence is still strong in the minds of friends and in the mind of the enemy, which will always be haunted by Imad Mughniyeh's blood.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:14

    Nasrallah: Jihad (Mughniyeh) stood on this podium to pledge his allegiance and declare his belonging through his free will. He carried Hajj Imad's spirit, left his university and went to Quneitra where he fell a martyr.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:13

    Nasrallah: The martyrs who recently fell in the Quneitra aggression are the sons of prominent resistance fighters who contributed to victories.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:10

    Nasrallah: It is important to learn loyalty and honesty from them and to learn the responsibility of making a decent and dignified future for our people and nation. We talk about their jihad to draw lessons and to teach the sons, grandsons and future generations.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:09

    Nasrallah: When Israel was occupying our land, Sayyed Abbas, Sheikh Ragheb and Hajj Imad were saying that Israel will leave our land.

  • 16 February 2015, 19:04

    Nasrallah: We commemorate this anniversary for us and for our children and grandchildren, not for the martyrs. We celebrate this occasion so that the past remains connected to the present and future.

    Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in speech commemorating the party's Martyr Leaders: Before I start my address, I want to strongly condemn Daesh's crime against the Egyptian workers, which cannot be tolerated by any religion.

Demagogic speech for backage people...full stop.

Thumb liberty 17 February 2015, 08:44

Nasrallah: Italy's defense minister has said that her country is willing to join an international anti-terror coalition because "terrorism is now only 350 kilometers away from the Italian border." Terrorism is on our border in the mountains, Qusayr and Qalamun and some parties are speaking of right and wrong.

laughable! Italy is not a sectarian party and no Italian party wants to go fight in another country. Second, Why did you veto Lebanon as a COUNTRY joining the coalition against ISIS?

Thumb geha 17 February 2015, 09:23

because jizbushaitan is an extremist terrorist Iranian militia, they did not allow joining the war on terrorists :)
they are afraid this war on terror to start fighting them too in the near future.

Long live the brave who sacrifice for their nation.

Thumb lebanon_first 16 February 2015, 20:13

roar.

2 points:

1-You live outside lebanon. all you know about lebanon is what you read in the media.

Lebanon is not Raqqa and the lebanese army is not the Iraki army. so dont even dream about ISIS in Beirut. Our army does not need HA to protect us against those criminals. We can handle them on on our own.

what pisses me off is that you have ZERO trust in Lebanon as a nation. True we have issues, but you take your mistrust to an extreme. And your spitting on all the efforts of our nation and our army is despicable.

2- IS and Nosra have been created directly or indirectly by Assad and HA. If Assad did not shoot his protestors, we wouldnt be here. If HA didnt help him, we wouldnt have ISIS.
Besides, HA is fighting ISIS in Syria. Most fighting in lebanon is carried out by our glorious army.

Thumb Mystic 16 February 2015, 20:32

Which is why it is called Army/Resistance, the army takes care of the security while the Resistance fights off the takfiri masses. The Resistance are doing the job that the LAF aren't allowed to do, tell me how come Arsal haven't been cleaned yet?

Because Hariri & Rifi will probaly call it an attack against them. Or better yet they will whine about the LAF taking the side of the Resistance, which many M14'ers did here on Naharnet I recall.

The LAF command, didn't want the Resistance to interfeer out of fear that it might spark secterian tensions at the time. Which is why we have the army to take care of such elements.

I wish though that they get the same greenlight, as they did in 2007. Emile Lahoud remember him?

- Looooooool I'm gonna use your catchphrase here: "wishful thinking." Mystic, did you forget that in 2000, Lebanon was still under Syrian occupation? Yet the LAF fought the takfiri by themselves. The LAF mobilised 13,000 troops and columns of tanks. The LAF (under Syrian influence) was not in the position to talk about Hezbollah interfering to raise sectarian tensions. The Syrian army could have forced the LAF to coordinate with Hezbollah, or the Syrian army itself could have spearheaded the assault.

Sectarian tensions lmaooooooooo right Mystic. That's why Rafiq Hariri and Sayyed Hassan were buddies (remember the picture of them sitting together having friendly conversation? Remember when Hariri had secret meetings with Sayyed Hassan to get himself back in the good graces of Assad??

Thumb nickjames 16 February 2015, 22:04

More about the 2000 Dinniyeh clashes: the reason 13,000 LAF soldiers were deployed is because Syria wanted it that way. Why lose their own men when they can have the Lebanese soldiers die instead? Which brings me to today: why aren't there 13,000 LAF soldiers deployed in Beqaa? Because Syria and Hezbollah don't want that. They want takfiri in Lebanon because their presence justifies Hezbollah's regional activities (fighting takfiri in Syria and Iraq to "protect" Lebanon). The LAF is subservient to the axis of evil.

Thumb Mystic 16 February 2015, 22:08

Same case as in 2015. The Resistance can not intervene in Arsal, due to secterian tensions it might elaborate. Did you forget your beloved Justice Minister Rifi, denying ISIS/Nusra presence right after LAF soldiers got beheaded?

Now I am laughing nickjames, you are such a hypocrit for real. Did you know Gen. Francois al Hajj was pro Resistance? He fought the Israelis himself, and he also had the full backing of the Syrian forces at the time.

He led the LAF during the Dinniyeh battles, and the Resistance backed him fully, just like he backed them in 2006. Don't twist my words, you are beginning to write insanely like your friend from texas.

Palestinian camps, have since the civil war ended, always been the job of the LAF, not the Syrians or the Resistance for that matter.

Thumb nickjames 16 February 2015, 22:22

Looooool such off-topic garbage as usual. One, I don't care about Rifi and his Internal Salfi Forces, I am not a Mustaqbal constituent.

How exactly did the resistance support the LAF in the Dinniyeh clashes, and how did Francois al-Hajj support the resistance in 2006 (besides sporadic shooting at Israeli jets)? Please inform me...

And who cares what Hajj's political leanings were, that's irrelevant. Your whole post was irrelevant, like usual you dodge, deflect and divert into other subjects irrelevant to the original debate.

Thumb Mystic 16 February 2015, 23:37

Yeah right, and you wrote that I am off topic, you just used the Dinniyeh clashes as leverage, and I just corrected you by saying the LAF general leading the offensive were actually Pro Resistance, you not caring about that, proofs that you are a real hypocrit indeed. Read about him and you will know. He was a true hero Francois Al Hajj, and I hope the LAF will inspire from him in the future.

Thumb nickjames 17 February 2015, 00:37

Mystic, "Which is why it is called Army/Resistance, the army takes care of the security while the Resistance fights off the takfiri masses." - this is what the debate was about. I did not use the Dinniyeh clashes as "leverage" for anything. I used them as an example to prove that the LAF fought the takfiri without Hezbollah assistance. I don't give a crap about who Francois al-Hajj liked and who liked him in return, it's completely irrelevant to the debate.

Thumb Mystic 17 February 2015, 01:12

Now it is suddenly not important in the debate, because it is going in my favor. The General Francois hajj leading the LAF to victory, praised the Resistance many times. I never claimed in any of my comments, that the LAF couldn't fight alone, they did in Nahr Al Bared & Arsal now. They do not get the proper backup or orders from the cabinet though, too many M14 saudi shackles tied around their heels. Without the Resistance holding back takfiris in Syria, then the army casualties would rise drastically. Ask soldiers off duty, they will say without the mouqawama, operations would be chaotic for them.

Thumb nickjames 17 February 2015, 01:28

Just look at what the thumb robots are saying, and tell me the debate is in your favour. "Now it is suddenly not important in the debate" lol I said twice that it was irrelevant, and still is (this is three times now). Stop talking about Francois al-Hajj. I don't care who he likes and who likes him. It has nothing to do with Nahr el-Bared or Dinniyeh.

Now you bring up Arsal which is an entirely different scenario than Nahr el-Bared and Dinniyeh. This debate is over, I'm done for tonight. Go waste your time arguing with other people.

"People should look up the facts and statements I write"

Looooooooool Mystic the "facts" you write is the same hearsay in the STL that you make fun of and call garbage lmao. You used no facts, no numbers, nothing. You just argued with me to argue with me, and when you argued, you just said a bunch of cockamamie nonsense about Francois al-Hajj being a Hezbo bootlicker, which is irrelevant.

Just a thought about that: if al-Hajj loved the resistance (as you claim) why didn't he invite Hezbollah fighters to join his soldiers in Dinniyeh???

Lol I swear to God if you even respond to me you have no shame.

The good Christians of Lebanon supports the Resistance, not the Judas called Geagea. When did Geagea do anything for the Christians of Syria? He didn't care one bit he even exploded a church, any of you guys saying "oh those are just Syrians" you don't know what Jesus A.S words was all about.

Thumb nickjames 16 February 2015, 21:01

Mystic, don't say who people support and don't support. Back in 2009 (the last time there were elections), Aoun was clearly more popular. In the six years since, Aoun's popularity has steeply declined because of his hypocritical and self-contradictory nonsense. The Christians are divided like always, which is why Lebanon will continue to fail as a country.

And so what if Geagea didn't do anything for the Syrian Christians, what did Aoun do for them? What did Aoun do for his captured soldiers and fellow LEBANESE Christians, who till this day are in Syrian jails?

Thumb Mystic 16 February 2015, 21:10

nickjames, you are the last to talk about Christianity, last time we discussed about religion, you wrote me that you were an Atheist, which resulted in me dropping the conversation entirely.

Gen. Aoun supports the Christians of Syria, by supporting the Resistance whom dies protecting them. While the backstabbing Zionists M14 in Lebanon says, "Oh it's just Syrians, 5ale moot."

Thumb Bandoul 16 February 2015, 21:13

@nickjames, an even better question is what did Mr. Aoun do to bring home the Christian prisoners rotting in Syrian jail where they are still being beaten and tortured?

Thumb Mystic 16 February 2015, 21:22

You people are a joke, Geagea bombed a Church! The Statue of Mary and Jesus peace be upon them, were laying around in pieces. Did Gen. Aoun ever do something like that? Did the Syrian Occupation do that?

Geagea did the same as ISIS did, bombing a Church and desecrating & crushing statues of Maryam al 3adra ou the crosses of Issa alayhi salam. Yet he says that Hezb are terorrists, he is the childkiller of all time, everybody knows it is not a big secret.

Thumb nickjames 16 February 2015, 21:26

Lmaoooooooooooooooooo so off-topic Mystic, what does me being a non-practising Christian have anything to do with who Christians support politically??

Whether I'm Christian, Atheist or Hindu: Aoun has lost so much popularity, and has done nothing for Syrian Christians. He hasn't done anything to secure the release of his loyalist soldiers in Syrian prisons.

Thumb Mystic 16 February 2015, 21:38

How is it off topic? If you are not a Christian, then how can you vouch for them, that is pretty simple nickjames. But then again, I guess all Geagea supporters are Atheists, no faith in God at all just dollars $$$.

"Aoun lost popularity" Now is that supposed to be a joke or what. He has more support than ever, more than Geagea I bet. More Christians actually support the Resistance after their actions in Syria, go to Lebanon outside the Achrafieh LF zones, and ask people yourself.

Thumb nickjames 16 February 2015, 21:48

Mystic, don't make a fool out of me. You know damn well that me not going to church on Sunday has no relevance to politics. I grew up in a Christian family, many in my family are practising Christians, and we celebrate Christian holidays. Just because I don't go to church does not mean I am not Christian.

Geagea bombed a church?? I thought he was acquitted for that in a court of law (the same court that gave him four life sentences). And stop living in denial about Aoun. The last elections were six years ago (the peak of his popularity). Now he is a senile lunatic he contradicts himself in the same sentence. The reason people support him is because of what he did 25 years ago, not what he's doing today. They are Aouniyeh loyalists until the end, no matter how ridiculous he sounds.

Now aint that a sight? M14'ers whine, and takfiris screams with you. Hezb sure are patient people.
By the way, Geagea is still a criminal. He got 4 life sentences for a reason, and he didn't fulfill his punishment, which is life imprisonment.

Good thing Geagea is still alive, it is amusing to see his zionist plan for Lebanon go to ashes, and him being an whiney old man with no heir to the LF throne but his wife. I hope he gets old, so he can continue to see this Resistance grow.

Because ma khasso fi. LF had no reason to enter the conflict, Ouwwet areas were not being threatened. Just because Mustaqbal was fighting, it doesn't mean LF has to. They had snipers in Ain Remmaneh in case they were attacked, but none of your brave SSNP thugs attacked.

LF were the ones getting whipped by Palestinian forces during the civil war, you Phalangists begged the Syrian army to come and save you in that War. You are actually wrong about Hezb being allied with the Syrians in the civil war, actually we had clashes with them. Not even nickjames, is moronic enough to type so garbage.

Learn your history phalangist junior. Who called upon Hafez Al Assad to save you from the "evil" PLO? Pierre Gemayael & Co. Don't be sad, you joined up with the zionists later. So who is the weaker one? You guys have always jumped on the wagon of the strongest.

As for SSNP, they actually won against the LAF in many battles, including assassinating the head of LF. So you shouldn't underestimate your nemnesis, I for one, do not underestimate Israel. Because I know what they are capable of.

Thumb Mystic 17 February 2015, 00:13

Meant to write SSNP, they actually won against the LF, my bad.

Anyway, The resistance was born out of the civil war. They had nothing to do with the politics before that, they were simply poor farmers with nothing else on their mind, than harvesting crops for the rich folks aka Kataeb families etc.

The Iranian Revolution in 1979 inspired them to resist against oppression after the Israelis invaded, and they succeeded in resisting the Israelis by driving them out of Al Janoub (South) Lebanon in year 2000.

This guy is a liar supreme. Let us remember the real recent history, not Nasrallah's fabrications. Let us remember that before Hezbollah joined the fight in Syria at the instruction of Iran to save the Assad Regime, that Assad was on the brink of defeat at the hands not of ISIS or Nusra, but at the hands of the FSA and the forces who started the Arab Spring Movement in Syria.
Iran and Hezbollah's involvement which was clearly sectarian, was a catalyst to the rump Al Qaida in Iraq force that had evacuated Iraq to Syria. They were able to rebuilt their Sunni Movement because of Hezbollah's intervention in the Syria War. So who created ISIS?? Hezbollah did. ISIS was a reaction to Hezbollah involvement in the Syria War. Nasrallah always has difficulty with cause and effect, confusing one for the other.
